Book Review: The Charmed List

Book: The Charmed List

Author: Julie Abe

Thanks to Netgalley and St. Martins Press Wednesday books for the eARC

This is a really cute fun read with an adorable cover, but as the saying goes, never judge a book by its cover.

The story follows a magical girl named Ellie that makes a Charmed list to complete by the end of the summer to help her start to grow out of her shell. She was supposed to take a road trip with her best friend Lia to a magical convention. Ellie’s family was having a booth at the convention but things took a turn. Now she has to take the road trip with her ex-best friend Jack. I really enjoyed watching Jack and Ellie’s relationship mend throughout the story. It shows that everything happens for a reason. I also loved their siblings Cam and Remy and how tight knit they are. I also love how they are genuinely looking out for Ellie

I just wish they would have explained the magic a little further. Maybe learning a little about how Ellie and Jacks’s family and how they had gotten these magical powers. I did want to visit a magical cottage and town after reading this story. They sounded so quaint and lovely. Who wouldn’t want a bedroom ceiling to turn into a sky full of stars?!

Final score 3/5
